REVIEW: CAMILLE 2000
OVERVIEW: To celebrate its 100th release, Cult Epics will unveil a newly restored, high-definition transfer of the erotic drama CAMILLE 2000 on June 28. Originally released in 1969, this sensual classic was directed by independent film pioneer Radley Metzger, a master of art house erotica who is acclaimed for his deft combination of opulent production design, exquisite cinematography and edgy themes.
Cult Epic’s high-definition transfer of CAMILLE 2000 enhances the visual beauty of the film’s rich Pop Art aesthetic with a vibrant gloss not seen since its theatrical release. Two versions of this newly restored gem will be offered June 28. The first, from CAV, is an extended version of the original that incorporates 12 minutes of additional footage compiled by Metzger. The second, from Entertainment One, features the original theatrical version of the film and includes those additional scenes as extras. Both versions of the film – each expanded with the same additional bonus features
SYNOPSIS: Set in Rome amid the height of psychedelic fashion, CAMILLE 2000 is a modern adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ novel “La Dame aux Cammelias.” The story follows the tragic affair between Marguerite (Daniele Gaubert), a doomed courtesan, and Armand (Nino Castelnuovo), a naïve bachelor who falls for her. The couple drifts through a seedy world of haute couture, inflatable furniture and fetish parties as their romance unravels to the pulsing accompaniment of Piero Piccioni’s lush score.
